Myers is not in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Giants.

Competitive Edge Analysis

As expected, Myers will sit out of the series finale in order to get a little extra rest for his ailing forearm. With the team's off day Thursday, though, there's a decent chance that the 25-year-old first baseman could return to the lineup for Friday's series opener against the Diamondbacks. For Wednesday, however, Brett Wallace will take over at first base and bat fifth in place of Myers.

Myers (forearm) is not expected to be in the starting lineup Wednesday, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Although Myers was adamant that he's fine, it sounds like manager Andy Green is intent on playing it safe and giving Myers another day of rest (and three in total with Thursday's team off) after his latest setback. Myers acknowledged that he felt something in his forearm Monday night, in the same spot he experienced some tightness earlier this month.

Myers said his absence from Tuesday's lineup was not injury-related, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

He did acknowledge that he felt something in his forearm Monday night, in the same spot he experienced tightness earlier this month, but Myers said he tested the forearm and that it felt fine. It sounds like Myers is confident he will be back in the lineup for Wednesday's series finale, but the training staff and manager Andy Green will have the final say.

Myers is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Giants,

Competitive Edge Analysis

The Padres did not immediately provide a reason for Myers' absence, but according to AJ Cassavell of MLB.com, Myers had his wrist wrapped following Monday's game. Of course, Myers missed a large chunk of time last year with a wrist injury, and he's battled some tightness in the area in recent weeks, but there's been nothing to suggest he's worse than day-to-day after this setback. Myers has seen his production tail off dramatically this month (.572 OPS) following a strong April (.853 OPS).

Myers (forearm) is back in the lineup Tuesday against the Giants.

Competitive Edge Analysis

A bout of forearm tightness resulted in Myers' late scratch from Sunday's lineup, but it seems the two full days of rest -- Monday was a team off day -- were sufficient to treat the ailment. Myers will bat leadoff against lefty Madison Bumgarner on Tuesday, marking his second start atop the order this season. The 25-year-old Myers is 11-for-39 with two homers and 10 strikeouts against left-handed pitching so far this season.

Myers was a last-minute scratch Sunday due to forearm tightness, Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The scratch of Myers on Sunday was a tough break for fantasy owners in daily formats, as the move wasn't announced until moments before the first pitch. The intriguing aspect of this decision is that the calf cramp that forced Saturday's early exit was apparently not to blame. Instead, it was forearm tightness that prevented him from being able to start Sunday. The team will likely reevaluate Myers during their day off Monday before deciding if he'll be ready for action Tuesday against the Giants.

Competitive Edge Analysis
